This paper describes the findings of a literature review of the effectiveness of nursing.
Three journals were selected in which this type of study was most likely to be published.
A diversity of attempts to measure nursing effectiveness with various types of patient was found.
Generally, however, there was a lack of rigour in study design and sample sizes were too small to be able to draw conclusions.
No studies were found which undertook a cost-effectiveness analysis of nursing interventions...
Suggestions for the way forward in measuring nursing effectiveness are given, together with questions to be addressed by nursing research.
